Josephson, Jacob

Jeweller and silversmith who was transported to Sydney for having forged notes in his possession. He opened a small store almost immediately on his arrival and despite a period in the debtor's prison in 1827, went on to succeed in business as a jeweller and merchant. In 1841 he purchased Enmore House where he lived with his family until his death.
